Nevada Safe Injection Practices Coalition Announces Release of Toolkits

July 22, 2012

The Nevada State Health Division has announced the release of two new toolkits — a healthcare provider toolkit and a state/local department toolkit — released by the Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC).  The toolkits present information from the One & Only Campaign, a public health campaign aimed at eradicating outbreaks occurring as the result of unsafe injection practices.

The purpose of the Healthcare Provider Toolkit is to “educate healthcare providers and patients and includes a new information PowerPoint, injection safety education video, checklist, posters and brochures.”

The State/Local Health Department Toolkit titled “It’s Real. It’s Recent. It Could become YOUR problem” was developed to promote safe injection practices.
